Sending a Photo of Myself to a Complete Stranger Online - Not Happening!

I just joined 'Similar Worlds' literally a few minutes ago, and I've already received a request from someone (I don't know the person, he's a complete stranger) for a photo. Er... excuse me? Do I know you? Are we friends? No.
[b]Why[/b] do people do this?

It takes away the fun of being on here staying anonymous is much more fun and don’t worry you will get lots of those requests just ignore them and have some fun

People do this because they are at least as nice as Art the Clown.

Lots of guys pester you for pics. I got my hubby to take my profile pic - that’s all I share.
Welcome to SW - hope you have a good time.

@Jill1990 Anyone should be able to tell what a beautiful woman you are from that pic.
Jill1990 · 31-35, F
@theoldschoola :) thank you

@lumberjackslam lots of people are motivated by sex - men more than women for sure. I think there is more than a little biology involved, and that type of motivation isn’t always bad. Not always good either, but I never slam someone for coming on to me. I do try to make my preferences known and if they’re not respected, I do what I have to.

Please read my about me just so you know how some of us feel….

Set your filter on medium or higher

So sorry! Who would have thought your PFP and name would draw attention? Please! 🙄
Oster1 · M
@Bellatrix2083 It would never draw attention. You are so right!
@Oster1 That's right. I am! 😊
Oster1 · M
@Bellatrix2083 There is no doubt! Of course, you are! 😊
I almost never use PMs here. There is rarely a reason to do so. So set your filter to "friends only" and, over time, you'll be able to collect a group of like-minded friends for those rare occasions when PMs are useful.

It's just his way of saying hello (said in a voice an octave higher than normal).

Hope and stupidity spring eternal.

Welcome to SW 😅

If you’re a woman, there’s a whole bunch of men here who’ll make an initial run at you in the hope of sexualizing you. If you ignore all of them some normalcy may surface eventually.
Applepiedom · 56-60, M
There has to be a pay off,so there is some success at doing this or people would stop.
But I do agree it's rude.
I am sorry, that your first encounters are of out worst denizens.. USE THE BLOCK
you get 500 for free
do like most of the women do, get a photo from the net send it to them,,

don't open the P,M,
Snuffy1957 · 61-69, M
They do it because they have absolutely no class...
1490wayb · 56-60, M
you dont belong here...it requires a very thick skin
Quimliqer · 61-69, M
Stand by your guns, that’s only the first request!!
Ignore them….indeed block them.
Welcome to SW.
antonioioio · 61-69, M
Because it worka with some and not with others ♥️
Because it is the internets?
Davidd · 31-35, M
I haven’t got it
Usually pervy men.
They do it because some women are [b]unwise[/b] enough to comply. But you can certainly refuse, ignore and/or block the person. Some women even have a message in their "about me" section ‘don’t ask for pictures’ etc.
Welcome to SW ! 😅
lumberjackslam · 41-45, M
set your message to: if you ask for my picture I will send you a picture of a dead person's snatch.
NinaTina · 26-30, F
Change your inbix settings to friends only and it will stop
@NinaTina I don't have any friends yet though. It's okay, I'll just refuse (and I did). If someone becomes a pest though, I'll just block them.
@Bellatrix2083 She means there are ways to filter messages out... I have mine set to friends only, nobody below a certain age, etc... But your way works too. I might suggest (sadly) the pfp may kinda invite unwanted messages?
